This work assesses the role and character of comedy and fantasy in colonial societies from India to Ireland, Australia to Cuba, Africa to North America. It deals with both oral and written traditions, the history of comic and fantastic discourse, visual, theatrical and literary representations.;This title answers such questions as "What are the differing traditions of comic discourse in Western and non-Western societies?", "How is humour and fantasy culture specific?", "In what ways do local traditions of humour and fantasy adapt to imperial invasion?", "How have colonisers used humour to deal with unfamiliar and sometimes hostile conditions?" and "What is the relationship between the fantastic, the parodic and the satirical in the create of a sense of national character?".
